eileen you is an expert in foreign policy in her own right, people like dr. james cornelius, the curator of the lincoln connection who is a living, breathing, encyclopedia of all things lincoln. those are the good things. the terrible thing is when you are here to research you're surrounded by the 15,000 books about abraham lincoln that have already been written. and so i think it is a stark reminder that anybody who comes here and asks you to put another book on that shelf really has some explaining to do right at the beginning. that is what i wanted to start out by doing because i came to lincoln in a kind of backwards way. my book is about his foreign policy, which is something that has been written about and frequently. and my background is in journalism, not academia. i was working as foreign correspondent for many years, mostly in the middle east reporting of the ground in places like syria, libya, yemen. so i was used to covering foreign affairs of the street level. went through a time several years back where i really wanted to take a step back and look at some of the frameworks

middle of a president's term while the foreign policies that you were involved in are still playing themselves out? >> first of all, all the conversations i report are on issues like afghanistan and iraq where the policies are already set and the decisions have been made, and our course has been established. second, i think a close look at the book would validate that nearly all of those conversations, in fact, present the presidents -- both presidents in a positive light of being tough minded, much pushing back, of asking hard questions, of doing exactly what american people would hope a president would do whenever the use of military force is involved. i didn't set out to vilify anybody in this book. and i don't think i did. but i think you have to read the whole book and not just quotes that are taken out of context. and i would just say -- i mean, the other piece of this is there's a whole genre of books out there that are written about insider conversations in the white house, quoting the president from private conversations, quoting private meetings and meetings in the situati

passing foreign policy. when the country hears a noise, what is really at stake is how we remain true to who we are in a world that is remaking itself at dizzying speeds. whether it is the ability of individuals to communicate ideas, to access information, or to forge bonds with people on the other side of the globe, technology is remaking what is possible for individuals and for institutions and for the international order. so while the reforms i've announced will point us in a new direction, i am mindful that more work will be needed in the future. one thing i'm certain of, this debate will make us stronger. i also know that in this time of change, the united states of america will have to lead. it may see some times that america is being held to different standards. i will admit, the readiness of some to assume the worst motives of our government can be frustrating. no one expects china to have it openly made about their surveillance programs. or russia to take privacy concerns of citizens in other places into account. let's remember, we are held to a difference entered precis

. >> 390 makes sense. >> go ahead. >> neil, there is no obama policy that makes sense. his foreign policy doesn't make sense, his economic policy doesn't make sense. there is nothing about it that makes sense, it's all confusion. this is the post-clear cut example of the confusion. >> then i'll put you down as a maybe on the process. when we come back and we do have a lot more here. we have a new report saying that the next wave of obamacare cancellations to my point with adam, could tens of millions of actual small business workers, now, could you be next? the forbes gang is on it at the top of the hour. up next, $120 million bucks is not enough. that was pitch to me from a former transportation secretary for a big hike in gas taxes. but was it actually a big swing an a miss? we play the tape. you decide. >> that's what we've always done in america. >> all right. we also account for the monies we spend in america. but we'll see, secretary. >> it's being accounted for, neil. >> we'll see. >> i am right. >> okay. fine. the's a saying around here, you stand behindhat you say. around

far beyond a few months of headlines, or passing tensions in our foreign policy. when you cut through the noise, is what's really at stake is how we remain true to who we are, in a world that is re-making itself at dizzying speed. whether it's the ability of individuals to communicate ideas, to access information, that would have once filled every great library in every country in the world, or to forge bonds with people on the other sides of the globe, technology is remaking what is possible for individuals and for institutions and for the international order. so while the reforms that i've announced will point us in a new direction, i am mindful that more work will be needed in the future. one thing i'm certain of this debate will make us stronger. and i also know that in this time of change, the united states of america will have to lead. it may seem sometimes that america's being held to a different standard. and i'll admit the readiness of some to assume the worst motives by our government can be frustrating. no one expects china to have an open debate about their surveil

he was talking about himself. no, that was a critical speech about foreign policy in america. he said the country was committing war crimes with the war in vietnam and challenged white modderates known as liberals saying they were allies for a certain period of time, and all of a sudden walked away. in his book "chaos for communicatee", one of thee books he wrote, he talked about that, in terms of whether allies said "enough has been done." when other evil forces went away. people said that's about it. he said, "no, now is the beginning of the nest phase, and we are still in that phase." i want the professor to address what you brought up, the riverside church speech. he brought up moderates. that speech was not well received, the position on foreign policy was not well received by the new york times, washington post and other moderate whites. >> that's true. dr king was vilified in the mainstream media, attacked by j edgar hoover, the fbi, and was called a communist, a radical and a socialist, in the mainstream media and at the end of his life, a year before he died, gallop did

been very successful in the eyes of many in his foreign policy in the past year. successful sochi olympics accentuate it. it takes the eyes off of other issues going on inside russia because inside russia things are problematic when you look at one of vladimir putin's most important reasons he is popular in russia is russians are living more prosperous lee than they ever have in their history. they experienced this remarkable period of growth from 2008-1998-2008, came back to a level of 4% growth which was okay, not with a wanted to be but vladimir putin has become president russian economic growth has fallen close to zero and in 2013 it was 1.3% and in the last quarter of 2013 it was close to zero and incomes were falling. the sense that he has brought prosperity to russia the olympics go badly, they are disgruntled and people looking around and saying things are not going so well economically right now in russia, if you were to have a dip in the oil price which is so important for the performance of the russian economy than one can start imagining the scenario where his leadersh

now a professional of intelligence and foreign policy at johns hopkins university. great to have you with us, john. first let's get your reaction to the president's speech. you have staunchly defended the nsa and the program. you were at the cia after the 9/11 attacks. what did you think the president said? >> well i think the president did a good job of lailg out for the public the role of intelligence in our national security system and i think he also did a good job of defending the nsa and americaing clear that other countries have intelligence programs like this. now, when he comes to the actual recommendations that he made i think the phrases that came to mind for me are the devil is rail in the details here. and also, wait and see. because when you look at the metadata program which has been probably the most controversial, what i heard him say was: we're going to transition this to a different system in which that data will be held by someone other than the u.s. government. he noted that's going to be complicated, that's not simple. if you put it in the hands of the phone
